Biomedical Engineering - Protecting Against Traumatic Brain Injuries (On-Campus)

*All sessions of this course are full. Registration is no longer available for this course.*

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Students will investigate how engineers apply Newton's third law of motion to studying the causes of traumatic brain injuries and designing solutions to prevent them. Students will collaboratively apply that knowledge to design and test helmets for quidditch players in Harry Potter’s world and undergraduate muggles.

Infectious Disease (On-Campus)

*All sessions of this course are full. Registration is no longer available for this course.*

As a leader in public health for over a century, Tulane University recognizes the importance of community outreach and action. Students will examine the factors leading to outbreaks of disease and the impact that infectious diseases have on our society. Empowered with this information, they will design public health campaigns to mitigate the spread of infectious diseases. 

Marine Biology

From the abundance of marine debris to development of toxic algal blooms, the state of today’s water systems and the organisms that call them home are in danger. Students will explore the impact of different organisms on the sustainability of marine ecosystems in New Orleans’s “backyard.” By examining how human actions disrupt the balance of these fragile ecosystems, students will design solutions to protect the native species of Louisiana's waterways.

Mysteries of Medicine (On-Campus)

*All sessions of this course are full. Registration is no longer available for this course.*

“I am going to be a doctor” ... Ok, what type? From diagnosis to treatment, students will explore the complexity of modern medicine and the different medical specialties that intricately work together to solve each patient’s medical mystery. Through case studies, guest speakers, and field observations, students will develop a better understanding about what it means to “be a doctor.” They will be challenged to use their knowledge to diagnosis and prescribe treatments to their own medical mystery. 

NASA’s ASTRO CAMP® - Roving Mars

Is Mars safe for humans? Students will explore how astronautical engineers design robots to discover the suitability of taking humans to Mars. As students investigate the challenges NASA engineers face, they will learn how to program and build LEGO MINDSTORMS robots to successfully build rovers and navigate a simulated Mars environment. 

Sports Analytics: Moneyball for All - How Analytics have Revolutionized the Sports World

Sports Analytics: Moneyball for All - How Analytics have Revolutionized the Sports World (On-Campus)

*All sessions of this course are full. Registration is no longer available for this course.*

Should a football team punt on 4th down or go for it? How much money should a team spend on its starting shortstop? Does home-court advantage really matter? These questions were once answered by a coach’s gut-instinct, player’s skill, or perhaps even team tradition. The sports industry is now turning to statistical analysis and number-based reasoning for answers. In this course, students will focus on how analytics is utilized to guide different aspects of sports teams from game strategy to team operations and management. Students will learn basic analytics skills and apply them in a variety of different situations in the sports industry, ranging from in-game play calling to salary negotiations.
